About meI am board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics.
This means that I spend most of my time devoted to caring for whole families, across the age spectrum. I focus on preventive medicine, chronic disease management and coordination of care across the health system.
I’m most interested in quality improvement and improving the delivery of health care for everyone.
What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is working with colleagues in various specialties and providing care for whole families in one office.
I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband. I also like reading and spending time outdoors.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Taj-Schaal has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
